    RPTVs are, at best, a stop-gap technology - a means of getting a large picture from CRTs (a technology which is decades old) without the accompanying weight of large direct-view tubes.

    I think, inevitably, as flat-panel technologies improve and/or become more cost-effective, they will supplant RPTVs as the preferred method of getting a big picture (and a small one, for that matter).
